How to run a custom os script during postprocessing?

Recommended Posts

Posted · How to run a custom os script during postprocessing?

Hi, I need to start a custom os script to convert PNG thumbnails into TFT35 bitmap inside the gcode just created.

I have the os script already working with pruslicer, there is a way to run an os command during postprocessing?

    There is no ready-made postprocessing script that runs an OS command on the gcode, but postprocessing scripts are "just" python files and you can run a command from python. Would you be comfortable in writing your own Python script? This would probably be a good starting point: https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/blob/master/plugins/PostProcessingPlugin/scripts/CreateThumbnail.py
